    God, I hope anyone on that mountain is hunkered down and can make out after this all over, but who am I kidding, anyone in their right mind would have bailed off there before this storm…I hope

    Anyone know what happened to tahoeweatherdiscussion.com?
    It would be nice if UN posted actual reports about the pissing/pounding situation like they used to.

    Why is this getting posted today, with forecast snow amounts for Thursday and Friday? I would like to see the update on how much snow they got the last two days to see if this record is even possible. I mean, if your interested in posting something like this, why not do a little research before hand instead of just copy and pasting an old forecast.

    Alaska gets dumps like this yearly but they never get documented. The glaciated areas get up to 150 feet per winter.

    The article fails to mention these forecasts were for 12366 feet. Far above base camp and the closest road access.

    These point forecasts from NOAA are not very reliable. The upper slopes of Mt Rainier get forecasts that look very similar to that multiple times over the course of a winter.
